The art of Walead Beshty attempts to find a way between the anti-aesthetic and the emptily aesthetic -- without simply filling a mediocre middle. A new show at the Hirshhorn features 36 wo

On first encounter, Beshty's 11 photograms -- images made by exposing photographic paper directly to light -- look like easy-on-the-eyes abstraction. Stripes and wedges of color, in shades of blue, green, red, yellow, cyan and magenta, work their way up large sheets of paper.
